After the kids opened their Easter baskets it was pretty much dinner time so we went down stairs and got the grill out and opened up a few reebs (for all you Kalifornia fans out there) and let the kids play outside while we cooked out. We made steaks and mexican corn, which was super yummy!
Yes, we like our steaks bloody; lots of flavor that way! And we topped dinner off w/a couple of glasses of Beringer...I know, totally WT. But the lady at Tom Thumb talked us into buying a bottle. She said Beringer does have a lot of low end wines but that some of their more expensive wines were really tasty. This was an 07' Cab and it was prob a $40 bottle (got it on sale for $15)! And I will say it was def tasty...very smooth. Cant forget about dessert...had a *HUGE* piece of cheesecake! Finally got the kids to sleep after dinner and then we watched the movie "Conviction" w/Hillary Swank & Sam Rockwell. Movie was a little ridiculous for me but slightly entertaining at the least and I really like both of them so I was a little disappointed.So that was Friday. Saturday Lindsey got up early and left to go ride. He rode at this benefit race for a girl (I think her name was Heidi Poisen or something like that) that was injured while riding motocross so there were some professional photographers there taking pics of all the riders that attended...got some good ones of him. And I stayed home w/the kiddos b/c they were going to Grandma's & Grandpa's later on in the day. That morning we were super lazy and lounged around. I think I had like a whole pot of coffee before I realized it was way past breakfast time and decided to finally make something to eat. Of course, I didn't neglect my poor starving children, I had made them breakfast earlier in the morning and got back in bed. I watched "Love & Other Drugs" that morning while vegging. Wasn't really impressed w/this movie either. Oh well. So the day went on and we finally got up and got dressed and headed out. Actually, I got tired of Kennedy asking me when we were going to go to Grandma's. Anyway, arrived at Grandma's to a new sand box, a new pool, and a new tent. I think my Mom got Easter confused w/Christmas. Here's some pics from Grandma's...the kids had a blast over there! Sorry for the naked booty..forgot to bring a suit & Grandma didn't have any little swimmers that fit. Ended up leaving the kids over there to spend the night and met back up w/Lindsey after his race and we called it a date night. We decided to go to Olive Garden. Got dressed and headed up to there to arrive to a 45min. wait, which was expected here in Frisco at any restaurant on a Saturday night. So we proceeded to the bar for some alcoholic beverages and some light conversation. Our buzzer buzzed and lit up after about 30min. and we headed to our table which was in the very back of the restaurant, which was fine with me b/c we were kind of hidden away from all the people and the lights; it was nice and dark back there. We ordered an appetizer (calamari...yummy!) and had some more drinks and after we scarfed that down we ordered our food...but before our food came out we had the best part of OG - the salad & the breadsticks! I ordered just plain ol' fetuccini alfredo and Lindsey ordered something w/clams...yuck. We took our time and it was sooo nice. I think we were there at the restaurant for like 2+ hours. But really, it was nice to have just the two of there taking our time, enjoying ourselves, not wrestling & fighting w/a 2 yr old toddler that's getting into everything and disturbing everyone around you. So after dinner we picked up yet another movie...man, we watched a lot of movies this weekend! We rented "Dinner for Schmucks" w/Paul Rudd & Steve Carrell. OMG! So hilarious, but a lot of akward moments! So that was Saturday and of course on actual Easter Sunday we went to church. Great service as always. We invited Lindsey's Mom and she really liked it. Kids had an Easter egg hunt while there and got waaaayyy to much candy. They woke up from their naps that day and first thing they asked was, "Can we have a piece of candy?" Sunday was laid back. Lindsey was at work and so the kids and I just chilled and went to bed early. :)
